‘A cultural heritage shared through dance and song’

For the Telegram

FORT LARAMIE – Join us as we celebrate Native American culture and heritage on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022, with a special event featuring the Wind River Dancers. The group will be traveling to Fort Laramie National Historic Site from the Wind River Reservation, home of the seventh largest Indian reservation in the United States. The performance will begin at 2 p.m. near the Visitor Center (Artillery Demonstration Area Bleachers). 

The Wind River Dancers perform a variety of American Indian dance styles, which are comprised of men’s traditional, women’s fancy shawl and jingle dress, to name a few. Throughout the presentation, the dance styles are explained to the audience in order to share Native American culture and heritage. Music performed by drummers and singers is also explained to the audience, so everyone has an opportunity to better understand this extraordinary exhibition of Native
American culture. 

Admission to the park is free. For more information and a schedule of events, visit the park website at www.nps.gov/fola or call the park at 307-837-2221. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
